I am actually learning German and in so doing realise that I need to understand my own language better.
In German there is a specific position for time information such as, 'in the morning', 'every day', 'sometimes', 'at 2 O'clock' etc.
I am aware of what sounds correct but do not know why. It seems that it can go at the beginning or end of a sentance but not in the middle (or after the verb) as in 'I eat every day my breakfast', which is a perfectly acceptable order in German.

Can anyone please help with my question, which is: Are there any rules for where to place this information within a sentance?

Hi Rainbo

There are quite a few rules and lots of exceptions to them. It would take me far too long to give you a detailed comprehensive account here, so I'll forward you to a site I Googled. It doesn't seem to be good at all because most of what should have been said is missing, but it'll give you an idea of what this is all about. I'm sure you can find similar sites on your own as well.

Cheers
CB

Hi Cool Breeze
Thank you so much for taking the time to reply. I had spent time googling for this information but didn't even know how to phrase my question correctly. The link you gave me is great. I now understand that I am actually querying the 'when' clause and adverbs of frequency and now understand the difference between these two.
